Let's not be silly, if we can have some contributions then we would 
welcome that, right? Why should we care how it's conceived as long as it 
meets the project's requirements.

If there are people willing to mentor inside the community than we 
should put all lights on green and await the proposals.

The UDP transport could be a suitable candidate for a project that could 
use mentoring? What about DSCP and/or SCTP mentioned in another thread. 
What about Zyre ported to the new TIPC transport? What about Edgenet? 
Android anyone?

Just saying,

Arnaud
